Pneumonia

What pneumonia vaccines does Lebanon Shops Pharmacy have available?

    • Prevnar 13​

    • Prevnar 20

  • Pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine

    • Pneumovax23​

Is one pneumonia vaccine better than another?

  • No, they provide different protection for different sets of patients -- we can help you figure out which vaccine would be best for you!

What is the difference between the different vaccines for pneumonia?

  1. The type of vaccine​

    • ​There is a difference in mechanism between the conjugate and polysaccharide vaccines, as polysaccharide vaccines do not work in children under 2 years old​​

    • Both types of vaccines are inactivated viruses (meaning they can't make you sick) and provide protection against several types of the bacteria that causes pneumonia (streptococcus Pneumoniae)

  2. The number of strains included in the vaccine

    • All pneumococcal vaccines are multi-valent, meaning they protect against multiple strains of the bacteria that causes pneumonia. ​​

    • The number of strains covered is shown in the name of the vaccine (i.e., Prevnar 13 protects against 13 different circulating strains)

  3. Who can receive the vaccine

    • Determined by the guidelines set by the CDC, which vaccine is best to receive is dependent on age and immunocompromised status 

​Why do I need a pneumonia vaccine? Why do I need to get more than one?

  • Pneumococcal disease (or pneumonia) is common in young children, but older adults are at greatest risk of serious illness and death -- the vaccine can help prevent pneumonia or reduce complications and hospitalizations related to pneumonia. 

  • The vaccines cover different strains of pneumonia

    • Children receive a series of Prevnar as part of routine childhood vaccinations ​

    • Adults should receive at least one dose of Pneumovax in their lifetime, and may be a candidate for an additional dose of a Prevnar vaccine (see below for details) 

Who should get a pneumonia vaccine? 

Recommended for: 

  • All children younger than 5 years old (4 dose series as part of routine vaccination schedule) 

  • Children 5 - 18 years old with certain medical conditions that increase their risk of pneumonia

For most adults, Prevnar is typically received once in a lifetime

-

*Note: Prevnar 13 may be substituted with Vaxneuvance (PCV15) per CDC guidelines
